about the next two. >> i think i would be worried about if i was in the obama campaign, deval patrick was on earlier, replaced governor romney in massachusetts, he was trying to maintain that obama won on substance but i don't think he won on any criteria. >> also, i got to tell you, go back and look at his closing remarks. it was rambling, it was disjointed, he seemed lost. lehrer, unfortunately for president obama, let him go on and ramble for well past the two minutes and the longer he went, the worse it became that he was clearly just unfocused. i think that hurt him. you know, piers, it's not so much what you say but it's how you come across to people. you've heard this all the time, i'm sure, in acting classes that 90% of communication is nonverbal. on the nonverbals, barack obama sent all the wrong messages. he looked petulant, he looked frustrated, he looked angry, he looked disinterested at times, and while he may have said some good things, it did not come across that way as a confident president who was proud of his record and had a vision for the country. just the opposite

with this health care reform. >> all right. next up, mitt romney says that under obama care, some kind of supernatural government board will decide what kind of treatments you ought to have. listen. >> he has as a model for doing that a board of people, at the government, an unelected board, an appointed board, who are going to decide what kind of treatments you ought to have. a and, true? >> john, i don't know about supernatural, but it is call the independent payment advisory board. and what this board does is it makes recommendations for certain changes. for example, it might say, you know what, we think we ought to pay hospitals less to do x, y, z procedures under medicare. so all of this is about medicare and it's about recommendations. this board does not go into mrs. smith's hospital room and says, oh, mrs. smith, we know you think you need a new hip, but we don't think you need it. that's not what they do. they don't make those patient-by-patient recommendations. the concern, john, is when this board recommends reducing payments for certain things, that hospitals are going to t

in america. i want to create 1 million new manufacturing jobs in the next four years. >> obama care is point number one. it is the example number one where he wants to put bureaucrats between you and your doctor, he believes that the government should tell you what kind of insurance you have to have. he believes that government should have a board of people that tell you what kind of care you can receive. my view is we fight for freedom in this country, i do not want an intrusive massive larger debt spending government that crushes the american dream. >> they like to call it obama care, well, let me tell you, i do care. i care about all the young people who are able to stay on their parents' plans now. i care about the seniors who are seeing lower prescription drug costs. i care about folks with pre-existing conditions who can't be denied care now. governor romney has promised that he would overturn obama care on its first day in office. which means -- which means he would kick nearly 7 million young people off their parents' plans. he would make seniors prescription drugs more expensive, yo

that obviously is going to be a problem for whatever president's next but not something president obama wants to be talking about right now. >> with iran obviously they're having sort of its own singular way inserting itself in the elections. we heard from ahmadinejad last week and heard from netanyahu literally drawing that red line on the metaphor kal bomb. >> right. >> could we hear from iran between now and say november 6th? >> well, this is pretty amazing. obviously when prime minister netanyahu spoke, there was a sigh of relief. not just in the obama administration but many who said, look, the deadline is next spring, next summer. there isn't going to be a possible israeli military strike before the election. but iran is doubling down. just today prime minister ahmadinejad back in tehran gave a press conference. and he said this, brooke, i'll quote him "we are not people to retreat on the nuclear issue. if somebody thinks they can pressure iran, they are certainly wrong and must correct their behavior." at least in terms of words, which actions are more important than words, but in term

and they wanted. right now the cbo says up to 20 million people will lose their insurance as obama care goes into effect next year. and likewise a study of mckinsey and company of american businesses said 30% of them are at risk of being dropped. for those reasons, for the tax, for medicare, for this board and for people losing their insurance, this is why the american people don't want obama care. it's why republicans said do not do this, and the republicans had the plan. they put a plan out. they put a bipartisan plan. it was swept aside. i think something this big, this important, has to be done on a bipartisan basis. and we have to have a president who can reach across the aisle and fashion important legislation with the input from both parties. >> governor romney said this has to be done on a bipartisan basis. this was a bipartisan idea. in fact it was a republican idea. and governor romney at the beginning of this debate wrote and said what we did in massachusetts could be a model for the nation. and i agree that the democratic legislators in massachusetts might have given some advice

, from dennis miller, obama better hope a kicked rear end is covered under obamacare. next from indecision. the october surprise in this election is that mitt romney is actually good at something. ouch. jim sterling tweets, obama is winning the "looking amazingly condescending when the other guy talks" race. finally this one for you from doug benson. just 14 minutes until we can all go back to preferring the kand date we liked when the debate started. all from twitter. we have a lot more. you know, as far as what happened last night and i promise to hear from the president and it sounds as though he is still debating today. he spoke just a couple hours ago in denver. here he is, president barack obama. >> i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. but it couldn't have been mitt romney because the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy, the fellow on stage last night said he didn't know anything about that. >> that was the president on last night's debate and, well mitt ro

it for the next four. and most importantly, talked about his own policies and set the record straight on some of the misleading ads that the obama campaign has put out about his tax plan, budget plan, health care plan, so on. he did exactly what he had to do for undecided voters, really pleased with his performance. >> what about the line from the president that mitt romney has not offered enough specifics? and if the specifics were so great, he would be revealing them? do you think the governor has to start revealing specifics, at least to the next debate? >> criticizing for knowing too many specifics, including sometimes by president obama and his campaign, with his 56-point plan. he has the plan boiled down to a plan thattic has a lot of sense. he is offering a way forward. the tax plan alone will gain 7 million jobs, it's pro-growth and this is analysis looked at by economists right, left, and center over the years, you need to reform the tax code to grow the economy. president obama has had four years to do it, hasn't done it. and mitt romney will do it day one. >> senator, i think you m

that's important. so i think that any obama supporter who really loves the president is a little worried that maybe sometimes he may speak longer than the evening news and the morning news the next day is able to cover in full. >> as someone who's moderated four debates with him can testify to that. congressman, to you, what's the biggest weakness governor romney has. i've moderated four debates with him as well. >> there's so much material to attack the president on -- >> no. not the president. romney's biggest weakness. >> well, i think part of the challenge is how do you succinctly get to that and at the same time when you only have 90 seconds or 120 seconds to answer a question then also be able to share your vision and your compassion to the voters that are watching at home. to be able to contrast the president's record and his vision, share with that in a compassionate way, that's challenging to do in 120 seconds. >> here's a big challenge that the president has, bill. look at this. likely voters we asked who will win the presidential debate? 56% said the president. 32% sai

by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states. >> paul ryan reacting very quickly. mitt romney reacting very quickly to biden's comments that the middle class over the past four years, four years being the obama administration, have been "buried." >> first of all, wolf, the romney campaign really has nothing to say in 24 hours. this is paul ryan who on fox news on sunday couldn't explain the romney/ryan tax plan. not because it's complicated, because the math don't add up. and for the middle class it hurts the middle class. it digs the middle class into the dead years of 2000 to 2010. >> how problemmatic? >> the republicans have nothing but gaffes. they love when joe biden speaks because for some reason they like to take those comments and blow them out of proportion flt i just think it's nonsense. if they want to talk about joe biden and who will help the middle class, that's an argument i think the democrats would like to have. >> there will be a lot of discussion of joe biden's remarks right now. >> donna's right. we like to talk about joe biden because he gives us a

they call the 3 ds. dissatisfied, disappointed and disenchanted obama voters. it's about convincing them that over the next four years, you will do a better job to improve their lives. what they're looking for is those, that narrower and narrower slice of swing voters. i mean, he's got a double job to do. >> he had a convention speech and he wasn't able to do it. >> that's why he's got to do it tonight. so but he's got a double job. he's got to talk to those swing voters who are disaffected about president obama, but then make sure his base turns out and he's got to get the base enthusiastic. now, what the base wants and those swing voters want maybe two different things. >> but how many people are still undecided? >> this many. >> but there are still people who are persuadable. >> have debates really persuaded them. >> john kerry, going into that first debate, was seven points behind. after that first debate, he was only two points behind. now, we know he ended up losing because president bush came back and did a better job in the second debate. but it did narrow the gap for john kerry.

of september. here is what they're seeing. president obama's campaign outspending mitt romney's campaign almost 2-1 in the last three weeks of september. take a look at the next level. super pac level, republican super pacs outspending 2-1. in some senate races it shows more than 50% of the ads on air in swing states are coming from these super pacs. fascinating measure just how much they're having an effect and, in some cases, propping up campaigns. >> the two biggest super pacs out there, dedicated to president obama and romney, they're obviously the chief of each of those is about to come on the show. how are they doing specifically? >> in terms of money raised to debt, current year-to-date totals we have, the general ratio shows restore our future, romney associated super pac outspending the super pac associated with president obama. for the month of august, first time liberal super pacs outraised conservative super pacs. the restore our future super pac aired no ads from a period of august 21st to september 19th. they were dark. that's an extraordinary thing and raises a lot of questions.

. court watchers expect one or more of them to retire during the course of the next presidency. which justices leave and whether the replacement is nominated by romney or obama could tip the balance of the court. i think back to the contentious health care decision, that 5-4 outcome, this may not be exciting stuff, but it is exciting if you're following it like we are. it is so, so important. wasn't to bri i want to bring in joe johns. president obama already put not just one but two justices on the current court. you know, reading into the supreme court tea leaves if you will, does that give us a pretty good idea as to who might be on the short list, if and when he's re-elected, and a vacancy perhaps pops open. >> well, i think so. you never know in these things, brooke, but if president obama were re-elected and got the opportunity to select a replacement, one of the names, interesting enough, that we have been hearing a lot is kamala harris, the california attorney general, also mentioned as a possible nominee for the united states attorney general if eric holder were to step down.
